How's the cold starts? I don't want to go to the grocery store and have it not start an hour later..
This is all assuming Its tuned up and running good of course.
I can say I do like the extra power @-30 below, if only I could get traction
I suspect that once the motor is up to operating temp, it'll sound the same whether It's in Fairbanks or in Miami. The difference will be that in Fairbanks, you won't want to stand outside and listen to it for very long.
